By Barry McCanna TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
NOTE: I've headed my review deliberately to distinguish it from the other six, all of which relate to an earlier Zoot Sims set by Avid, and which have been cross-posted here by Amazon under their flawed "product group" policy.

The earliest album in this 2-CD set was recorded in Paris in March 1956, with a small group led by pianist Henri Renaud, with trumpeter Jon Eardley, Benoit Quersin and drummer Charles Sudrais. It was released in France on the Ducretet-Thompson label as "Zoot Sims in Paris", but appears here as "Starring Zoot Sims" from the English issue. "Stretching Out" was recorded by the Zoot Sims/Bob Brookmeyer Octet in December 1958, and issued by United Artists. Saxophonisr Al Cohn, trumpeter Harry Edison, pianist Hank Jones, guitarist Freddie Green, bassist Eddie Jones and drummer Charlie Persip made up the numbers. Zoot's next visit to the recording studio in January 1959 was as one of a nineteen-piece band directed by Bill Potts in "The Jazz Soul of Porgy & Bess", another United Artists release. Finally, "The Great Zoot Sims: Down Home" dates from June 1960, showcases Zoot in a quartet, with pianist Dave McKenna, bassist George Tucker, and drummer Dannie Richmond, and was released by Bethlehem.

Zoot's sinewy tone dominates the proceedings on the three small group albums and, given his preference for playing with a conventional rhythm section, it's apparent that he chose his backing with care. The concentration is upon jazz and songbook standards, and there's a great sense of drive and a spirit of exuberance throughout. The Gershwin album takes the listener into different territory, and of necessity Zoot's role was subjugated to that of a sideman and occasional soloist. Given the extent of Zoot's recordings as leader, this seems a somewhat strange choice to complete the set, but to withhold a fifth star would be to look a gift horse in the mouth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zoot Sims: Four Classic Albums 30 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Sheer class from start to finish. I can't understand why it took me so long to get some digital ZS. These four albums find the elegant and unpretentious tenor man in such exalted company as Hank Jones, Bob Brookmeyer, Al Cohn and that great wasted talent, Serge Chaloff. A total delight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for money 16 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is truly a fantastic package. My only negative comment would be about the sound remastering: removing the tape hiss often messes up the high frequencies (though this may be a personal dislike). That minor flaw aside this must be the best way of obtaining four magnificent Zoot Sims titles, which are otherwise out of print or available through expensive japanese imports.
